Blogoversary: Six Years of blogging Pride & Prejudice!
celebrates 6 Years Online!
Okay, I almost forgot to post and mention here that on this day (May 29th, 2007), I started this blog. Wow, 6 years! I can't believe it's been 6 years already! It seems just like yesterday, I was a virgin to blogger, lol..and was learning and figuring out how to add codes and contents to this blog. I never thought I'd be blogging about all things P&P, let alone this long, but it's all because of my love for this movie version of Pride & Prejudice and the amazing actors who portrayed my favorite P&P characters brilliantly on this 4th-time Oscar nominated film. I really enjoyed blogging here and posting all things P&P and Austen related topics as frequently as I've been able to for all these 6 years. And you know what they say, time flies when you're having so much fun. Indeed, it had flown by so quickly. I must say, I have loved and enjoyed posting here and keeping this blog updated as often as I could (or have the time to).
So, yeah, six years ago today (May 29th), I started this blog as just an archived for P&P movie news and articles...and now 6 years later, this blog is still here and has expanded to a much bigger and frequently updated blog with all things Pride & Prejudice (esp. the 2005 film and its actors/cast and their film projects' news and more) and Jane Austen related news/articles/movies (ie. Becoming Jane, The Jane Austen Book Club, Lost In Austen, Aisha, From Prada to Nada, A Modern Pride and Prejudice, Austenland, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Death Comes To Pemberley, etc.).
Here's one of my previous posts that relates to how I started this blog: Confessions of a P&P Blogger
Also, some of my favorite P&P movie related posts that you might enjoy viewing and reading (if you haven't already read them)...

Thanks to everyone especially to all the daily visitors, readers, subscribers, contributors (thanks a lot to all my friends over at my old P&P '05 Forum esp. JW, Liz, Stephie, Kate, Michelle (aka Mary Bennet) and these 3 multi-talented ladies: Antonella, Rachel and Giulia/Eowyn for all your help on the previous arts/banners used here in this blog and at the forum. I love, appreciate, and can't thank the 3 of you enough for your beautiful arts/wallpapers/P&P videos contributions to our lil' P&P fan forum/community), to all the P&P fans/friends on this P&P Blog's Facebook page (ie. fellow Devoted Fans of P&P FB co-founders/co-admins/friends Jessica Tapia and Audrey Lawrence) and my wonderful twitter friends. Thanks a lot ladies!
Special thanks to the following contributors and Guest Bloggers (over the years) to this blog:

And most of all, THANK YOU to all the P&P fans around the world who are fans of this amazingly beautiful film, of course, and all the P&P cast/actors featured on this blog (ie. Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen, Rosamund Pike, Jena Malone, Carey Mulligan, Talulah Riley, Brenda Blethyn, and Donald Sutherland to name some as well as director Joe Wright) ...for without you all and the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film, this Blog wouldn't have started or made it this far. Hope to keep this blog around and to continue to blog all things P&P/Austen related topics for as long as I can.

P.S. New Layout: I changed the layout (as you may have noticed, not exactly the background and it's image, I kept it the same as I love it the way it is) slightly and fixed the side bars as well as changed the header banner (see a screen shot of the previous ones below) with a simple one I made quickly today. I thought it's time for a slightly new look and what better way to do so than today, on it's 6th year anniversary (which I tend to change the layout, at least once a year, or so...). I've been working on this blog a bit today, updating and fixing some contents/pages, as you can see there's a new cool wibiya tool bar just added recently below the main page with cool app links (check it out!)...so this will be a work-in-progress...
